Home and EU part-time undergraduate students starting their first degree can apply for student finance, meaning you don’t have to pay tuition fees upfront.

Undergraduate funding

If you already hold an Honours degree or higher level qualification and are thinking about studying one of our part-time Honours degrees in engineering, technology or computer science, you may be able to get funding.

If you are funding your studies yourself, we offer flexible payment plans.

EU funding and support

The UK Government has confirmed that EU students enrolling in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic years will be eligible for the same funding and support as those in 2017/18.

Differences for home and overseas students

How much you pay for tuition fees depends on whether you are assessed as a home / EU or overseas student.

All new students are required to complete a fee status assessment, and from this information the University will determine if home or overseas fees are payable.

Students disputing their overseas status will be given an opportunity to provide evidence to support their claim for home fees.

Students disputing fee status will be unable to enrol on any programme unless 50% of the total overseas fee for the year is paid on or before enrolment.
